37m Catamaran Passenger Ferry Kilimanjaro III

Incat Crowther is pleased to announce the launch of the 37m Catamaran Passenger Ferry Kilimanjaro III.

Built by Richardson Devine Marine (RDM), Kilimanjaro III is the third vessel from the designer builder partnership for Coastal Fast Ferries in Tanzania, Africa. Kilimanjaro III was developed following the success of Kilimanjaro I and Kilimanjaro II. Incat Crowther and RDM were approached by the operator to develop a larger, faster and more versatile vessel. The result is a 558 passenger vessel that is larger than any other vessel on the Zanzibar – Dar Es Salaam route, in addition to being capable of the more rugged offshore route to the Island of Pemba. Furthermore, Kilimanjaro III carries more passengers at less cost per-passenger to the operator, taking further advantage of the operation’s revenue-making potential.


Taking advantage of an increased beam, Kilimanjaro III’s passengers are accommodated in a mix of seating levels and styles. The main deck passenger deck features 249 economy class seats, with those nearest the aft kiosk equipped with tables. The aft end of the main deck has been reconfigured with a larger luggage room, located directly adjacent to the side crew ramps to speed up turn around. The upper deck has outdoor seats for 107 passengers. Amidships there is a first class cabin with 74 seats. The sundeck has seats for a further 60 passengers.
 

Kilimanjaro III features Incat Crowther’s new generation hull form, which offers increased efficiency and improved seakeaping. She is powered by a pair of Cummins KTA50 engines, each producing 1340kW. Excellent performance on sea trials proved the virtues of the hull form. Loaded performance was recorded at over 31 knots, and will operate at 29 knots at 77% MCR. Incat Crowther is pleased to continue its relationship with Coastal Fast Ferries and believe the growth in business is in no small part due to Incat Crowther’s attention to client service and its ability to add value to the client’s operation.
